Well, I’m posting on Tuesday but the photographs were all taken yesterday morning.
The forecasts here are not always accurate but snow and high winds had been forecast for Sunday night, Monday morning for most of last week so I had to take it seriously. I put fleece over the plastic coldframe in the hope that it was in a relatively protected position and the fleece wouldn’t make the whole frame take off.
I also put fleece over the newly planted out Pak Choi and Chard but decided to leave the peas and broad beans to their own devices.
This is what I awoke to on Monday morning.
It might be a little cold though so perhaps we’d better take a walk around the garden.
The large pot in the foreground contains Agapanthus; they won’t like the cold.
The evergreens are coated in snow (I hope they are warm under their snowy blanket).
Leaving the shade netting on looks like a bad decision this year unless it is keeping the chill wind off the roof. Snow covered olives to the right.
The view you’d see if you were sitting on the seats in the first image.
amazing how cold the wind must have been to have created this form.
I had placed all the Agave and Succulents against the wall in the hope that they would be protected from the wind; it must have been swirling around for them to be covered in this way. I hope they’re OK!
A view I don’t often show but maybe showing more in future (but more about that in another post).
Did you have snow and cold weather from Siberia? Do share some photographs of your snowy garden.
I’m still blocked in as the lane is blocked by icy drifted snow about 70 cm high.
